Happy Holidays Swather Families!
Hesston Elementary students worked hard the last few days of 2015. Several Holiday traditions will continue during the month of December. Santa will visit all classrooms on December 18. Students and staff will participate in an All School Singing Around the Christmas Tree on the 18th December at 2:15. We will end the day with Winter parties from 2:40-3:00. Thanks to the H.El.P organization for their continued support during many of the holiday celebrations.
Students and Mrs. Funk worked hard preparing for the Winter Concert. Their hard work and efforts paid off with a show that rocked the house. Great job students! A special thank you to all of the staff, parents, and community members who contributed to this special event. Please take a moment to check out the concert photos on the school website under the parent connect tab and thank Jennifer Zaccagni for sharing her photography talents with the elementary.
Thank you to all of our dads and father figures for continuing to spend a day with your child(ren) volunteering at school. Our WatchDOG Wall of Fame continues to grow with photos of children and dads. If you have not signed up for second semester now is your chance. Please see school’s web page, under HES H.El.P. to sign up for second semester. There are still dates open at the end of January.
I have a few reminders to help make our school safe for all students. If your child has to cross Amos Street to get to the front of the school, an adult must assist them cross the street. The alley to the west of the school is reserved for buses only throughout the school day. It is not to be used as a drop off or pick up point for students. Student safety is a priority, so please follow these procedures in order to help keep everyone safe.
Please help the drop off/ pick up line move efficiently by not leaving your vehicle unattended. If you need to leave your car, you will need to park in the lot or street. Keep up with us on Twitter. Join us at #HESSwathers to see activities and classroom happenings.
Thank you to all our parents and families for your continued support. It is has been a privilege to work with your child(ren). If you have questions or concerns, please contact me or your child’s teacher. Best wishes this holiday season, may it be filled with peace and joy!
